I’ll go against the board here and say I really liked Kings early work. His books are the only reason I ever really started reading. The Stand is still my all time favorite book. My other top King books are Salem’s Lot, The Shining, The Tommyknockers, Skeleton Crew had some good ones including The Mist. Cujo and Carrie made pretty decent movies, but don’t forget The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mike are both King.
I even read the whole Gunslinger/Dark Tower series which is about 7,000 pages. He’s not a very likable guy and extremely egotistical, but he’s got a decent batting average.
I still think his wife or kid wrote some of those crap books, then they slapped his name on them to sell.
